 Tim Wright, TE, NEP8/28/2014 10:59:00 PM 
Description: Patriots tight end Tim Wright caught 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards in Thursday\'s preseason finale against the Giants. Insight: Wright worked with the second-team offense and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The new Patriots tight end has enough talent to earn more playing time with the starters, but as of Week 1, he is just one of many potential targets for Tom Brady.
 Johnny Manziel, QB, CLE8/28/2014 10:25:00 PM 
Description: Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel completed 6-of-17 passes for 83 yards with a touchdown and ran four times for 55 yards in Cleveland\'s preseason finale on Thursday. Insight: Brian Hoyer started and led the offense to a 85-yard touchdown drive. Manziel was not particularly accurate, but in his unique style, he made plays with his legs. In four preseason games, Johnny Football is 30-of-58 for 296 yards, two touchdowns and no picks. He has also ran the ball 12 times for 88 yards and a touchdown. If Hoyer struggles early on this season, it will be tough to keep Manziel on the bench.

 Michael Carter-Williams, G, PHI8/27/2014 1:59:00 PM 
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) has not yet been cleared for five-on-five workouts with contact, according to 76ers GM Sam Hinkie. Insight: Carter-Williams had surgery over the offseason to repair his left shoulder. He missed 12 games his rookie season, but won the Rookie of the Year with averages of 16.7 points, 0.8 3-pointers, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. If he can stay healthy, he should be a reliable point guard option especially in leagues that have no penalty for turnovers.
 Thaddeus Young, F, MIN 8/23/2014 2:59:00 PM 
Description: The Timberwolves have acquired Thaddeus Young as part of a three-team trade with Cleveland and Philadelphia. Insight: Minnesota did a good job to get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Young for Kevin Love, who made it known that he was leaving in free agency anyway. Young was an underrated fantasy option last season, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 threes, 2.1 steals (third in the NBA) and 0.5 blocks per game. He\'ll start for the \'Wolves and should be the top offensive option as the team tries to replace Love\'s 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.

 Steve Mason, G, PHI8/21/2014 1:56:00 PM 
Description: Flyers goalie Steve Mason (finger) returned to the ice this week after not skating the past three weeks according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Insight: He suffered a broken pinky finger while playing ball hockey, but Mason should be ready for training camp. He posted a 33-18 record with a 2.50 goals against average in 61 games last year.
 Clarke MacArthur, LW, OTT8/21/2014 1:48:00 PM 
Description: Left wing Clarke MacArthur and the Senators have come to terms on a five-year extension. Insight: MacArthur went on to tell the Ottawa Sun that he will not change the way he plays the game. "Just because I\'ve got a five-year deal, that doesn\'t mean I need to change a whole lot. I kind of want to play the same game. I want to play good in both ends." MacArthur had 24 goals and 31 assists in his first season in Ottawa last year.
